Excited to see the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 getting ready to make their retail debut? We are too, but so far we’ve been pretty in the dark on the smartphones’ launch details. Now that October’s nearly here, we expect to start seeing the pieces fall into place, and one of the first truly confirmed of info arrived this week, upon Nokia announcing details of the two phones’ European launch.
Both the Lumia 920 and 820 are coming to Germany this November. Unfortunately, Nokia wasn’t ready to go into more detail than that regarding the actual timetable, but it did have a little bit to say about pricing.
The Lumia 920 will sell for what works out to about $835, while the Lumia 820 will go for closer to $645. Clearly, we’re talking off-contract here, and though those prices factor-in taxes, remember that those will work out differently in other areas of the world.
After launches like the Lumia 900 going for just about $100 on-contract in the States, Nokia’s going to be feeling the pressure to keep its subsidized prices way down for these phones. Especially with the iPhone 5 out now, the market’s really going to be heating up, and Nokia can’t afford to not seem competitive.
